Bankstown Montessori Pre-school 2018

Bankstown Montessori Preschool 2018 has been a busy and successful year. As well as our usual program of work, activities at the centre have included our reunion afternoon tea for past students, Jeans for Genes day for the Children’s Medical Research Institute, simultaneous Story time and book reading by parents to celebrate book week. The week was also celebrated by a whole school excursion by bus to Bankstown Library for books, games and storytelling.

Incursions have been provided each term by the Young Aus Workshop with shows involving storytelling, dancing, music, songs and puppetry. Two terms of soccer football skills were provided by the Red Devil’s Soccer Academy with an opportunity for parents to attend a lesson and see how the children were progressing.

Other interesting and great learning experiences were provided by Andrew, Abrielle and Alanna who came from The Children’s Medical research institute to explain about cells, genes and chromosomes and why it’s so important we help. We also undertook a workshop on first aid especially devised by First Aid for 3-6 year olds.

We held our own commonwealth games to coincide with the real event. We had some unusual sports and it was great fun for both teachers and children.

The extended day children have made two excursions – one to Calmsley Hill  Farm and the other to see a theatre production at the Riverside Theatre.

Our Science Fair was again very successful. this year we had some additional publicity from the local paper.

The theme was ‘Volcanoes’ and the fair was well attended by the school community. We again received a grant from the National Science Week school grants committee and we were able to obtain a ‘Museum in a Box’ on rocks and minerals to supplement our science displays.

A graduation concert and lunch was held last week. Poor weather initially intruded but we managed the new day quite well and we hope everyone enjoyed themselves. The children are always excited to put on this event.
